Great post, Cliff!

I bet they had a trunks full of this kind of stuff...

From one of my favorite Dark Stars... http://www.archive.org/details/gd1973-08-01.sbd.sirmick.patch-12222.92478.sbeok.flac16

The random percussion comes, I assume, from Billy, after the verse.

Noah Wiener (?) calls them chimes and thumb piano (http://www.deadlistening.com/2008/04/1973-august-1-roosevelt-stadium.html)... not too sure but its wonderful. Gives the jam an innocent child-like, rolling in the crib quality while the band is exploring a darker theme.
